out between democrat joe manchin and republican pat toomey on expanding background checks. joe manchin, who is a gun positive democrat from west virginia with an a rating from the nra has been looking to make a deal like this for months, ever since the massacre of sandy hook elementary school in december. he made it clear he wanted to work on gun safety not from republicans in the aisle but in the room at the negotiating table. he was pretty optimistic the nra would cooperate. >> i want to call our friends at nra and bring them into it. they have to be at the table. we all have to. i'm telling you, i believe this is a time for all of us to sit down and move in a responsible manner. thick they will. >> that was joe manchin speaking on this network december 17th, three days after the sandy hook massacre. here's what happened next, even as joe manchin was inviting them into the fold the nra was fighting background checks with all their might. in multiple public appearances wayne lapierre called it as an unworkable nightmare of bureaucracy offered up by public elites. joe manchin r

to think about talking about gun control. amazing. now, with me tonight are democratic senator joe manchin and republican senator patrick toomey. [ applause ] they both worked very hard together to bang out a bipartisan agreement. these men risked everything for this bill. i mean, senator manchin represents west virginia and he's proposing gun reform? he's going to lose his job. [ laughter ] and senar toomey, this man is a republican who is willing to make just the slightest compromise on gun control? he's going to lose his job, too. but that's what it takes to achieve compromise. so why don't you tell the folks at home what you've accomplished. >> we'd rather not. >> oh, no, go ahead, tell them. >> well, first of all, most americans agree that we need stricter background checks. if our bill passes, no individual can purchase a handgun from a private dealer without being asked, are you a good person? so the follow-up question -- seriously, are you? >> we're also hoping to limit the amount of ammunition you can carry in magazines. we did not do that, though. >> we have agreed to lim

move ahead with the debate on a bill. that includes a bipartisan deal brokered by democrat joe manchin and republican pat toomey to expand background checks to purchases made at gun shows and over the internet. kim, the president just said it's not about politics, but is it? what are the politics here? >> i think what the way you need to look at this, stuart, is what this bill, what is on the floor of the senate now is answering whether politics of gun control has changed. the white house made an enormous bet that it had and it was their plan to put out an aggressive plan for gun control and lambaste them and use outrage against republicans if they stood in the way. what happened, most of the president's proposals things like the all the weapons ban, have been stripped out by the president's own party. and what many of the senate democrats realized the politics haven't changed and these could be a career ending vote if ne gothey go along with, not just because the voters don't like it, but unconstitutional because of the recent supreme court ruling in heller. >> stuart: dan, where are we o

are backing this manchin/toomey amendment. remember, this is the compromise that democrat joe manchin and republican pat toomey came up with, expanding background checks to gun shows and internet sales, hoping to bring the two parties together. and, in fact, there are a handful of republicans, john mccain seems to be among them, who have decided to vote in favor of this. there are also a couple of democrats from conservative states who have decided to vote against it. and a few in the middle who are undecided or unannounced. and that is why we don't know exactly how this vote may go. but it looks like it's very close, but iffy. this was supposed to be the one part of the gun-control measures that actually had a chance of passing, assault weapons and others up for vote today likely won't. it came after an impassioned plea from former congresswoman gabby giffords and husband, mark kelly, and one of the things that they said, meeting behind closed doors with democrats yesterday was, if you're from a conservative state, if you're up for re-election, and this is not looking good ba
